Was just curious if there were any shops that end up having leftover components from having to do swaps upon bike sales. Hopefully this isn't too sketchy of a question for RBR forum terms.

Bent Spoke in Oakland (Telegraph) seems to have some used parts.

In Berkeley there's some shop on Sacramento St that looks like it deals with used bikes (sorry, I don't remember the name, I only pass it).

There's a used part bin at Roaring Mouse Cyclery on Irving in SF. I've also hear of this place in SF called the Bike Kitchen. If you're a member, spare parts are free, otherwise, everything is $5.

Pretty much any shop has some amount of gear around, even a tiny shop like mine ends up accumulating parts over the course of a season. Your best bet is to know exactly what you want. If you ask for "some SHimano drivetrain parts" everyone will say yes. Ask for a "170 mm 50/34 cransket" etc., and you'll save yourself and the shops a lot of headache.
